What, monks, is totality? It is just the eye with the objects of sight, the ear with the objects of hearing, the nose with the objects of smell, the body with the objects of touch and the mind with the objects of cognition. This, monks, is called totality..

It’s easy to see The errors of others, But hard to see Your own. You winnow like chaff The errors of others, But conceal your own– Like a cheat, an unlucky throw. If you focus on the errors of others, Constantly finding fault, Your effluents flourish. You’re far from their ending.

– Dhammapada [18]

The mindfulness of in and out breathing, of body contemplation, of keeping consciousness of the moment, is a noble occupation and a sublime way, leading to independence of mind and to wisdom.

WEEKLY WISDOM 10/08/2015

He who seeks happiness should withdraw the arrow; his own lamentations, longings and grief. With the arrow withdrawn, unattached, he would attain to peace of mind; and when all sorrow has been transcended he is sorrow-free and has realized Nibbhana.

WEEKLY WISDOM 03/08/2015

Forsaking dark practices,
the wise person
should develop the bright,
having gone from home to no-home
in seclusion, so hard to enjoy.

There he should wish for delight,
discarding sensuality–
he who has nothing.
He should cleanse himself–wise–
of what defiles the mind.

– Dhammapada [6]
